Katie Bourne Interiors designs and makes high quality children's wallpaper for bedrooms, playrooms and nurseries. The wallpapers demonstrate Katie’s cute sense of fun. Although obviously influenced by traditional children’s story books, the stylised images are very much contemporary so that they appeal to today’s children as well as parents.
Made and printed in England using traditional techniques on high quality, sustainable forest paper in striking colour combinations, they are quite beautifully illustrated. Katie grew up on a working farm in rural Staffordshire and from a young age has had a passion for children’s book illustration and animation, enjoying their artwork skills and techniques. She went on to train at Cambridge School of Art to gain BA (Hons) in Illustration. She continued to work in many different media, mainly in water colour and ink for commissioned illustrations for individual business and clients.
Her continued passion for the arts - along with her new nephews and godchildren - led her to design her first collection of children’s wallpapers. Her aim is to create designs with a feeling of classic storytelling; papers which involve the child’s imagination within the patterns, allowing them to create their own adventures using the inspiring images. The wallpapers are whimsical, fun and very English.
